READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Happy Harry 2

This is such a quick throw-together. Makes a great simple dish or as a side with roasted chicken. BTW, when using as a side I often add some minced fresh dill.

I did this with baby new potatoes and it was pretty good actually. I liked the combination of all the flavors together. I didn't use as much sour cream as the recipe called for. It seemed like it would be too much and overwhelm the potatoes
